Slow Cooker Pork Cacciatore

Rated as 4.38 out of 5 Stars

"A wonderful Italian neighbor showed me how to make this recipe after I commented on how good it made the neighborhood smell when she had her windows open when she made it. This American-Italian term refers to food prepared 'hunter-style,' with mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, various herbs, and sometimes wine. I found adding cheese gave it something special, it also made it mine."

I always dis-like people who "massacre" recipes and then rate them so low (well duh! It's not like you're some awesome well known chef!), so having said that, I made it per the instructions and ...

As written, the recipe is bland and watery. It needs salt, at a minimum (I can't believe none is called for!), and I'd be careful what kind of pork chop I used in the recipe. Mine came out dry a...

DELICIOUS! I was a little hesitant to try this, as I lived in Italy for a short time and hold my Italian food to a very high standard. I was very pleased with the turn out. It would be better...

This was delicious. Only problem was the chops came out so tender, they were falling apart in pieces and I couldn't lift out whole ones. Also, this makes A LOT of sauce so either add more chop...

I've made this recipe a few times, my daughter LOVES it! The first time I made it exactly as written, the second time I just threw all the ingredients together in the slow cooker. The result is...

People are right about the pork being dry but it's not the recipe's fault. Pigs are bred for leanness now, and when you braise meat, what makes it tender is the fat and connective tissue turnin...

I didn't brown the pork before putting in the slow cooker and they cooked perfect. The dish was wonderful served over rice.

I grew up in a predominately Italian neighborhood; where three generations in the home; was the norm. The grandparents were usually from the “Old Country.” The smells of food cooking all day l...

The sauce was great! I didn't have fresh mushrooms so used canned (drained) and skipped the wine. (Had that *with* dinner!) I didn't like the pork chops; I'd use chicken thighs next time and ...
